The Eagle is a very cosy pub with a warm welcome from the staff. The pub has four real ale pumps, with three real ales on at the time of a visit in May 2023 - being Salt Tweed, Birmingham Pale Brummie & Bays Orangutan. Also has a QR code you can scan to see what Real Ales are on next. Traditional British pub food is on offer, including Sunday roasts. In Summer the beer garden is a real asset and is the perfect way to spend an evening.

The Eagle Tavern, Grecian Theatre Pleasure Grounds and Grecian Saloon and Olympic Theatre once stood here (1825-99) and it was where Marie Lloyd, the music hall artiste, gave her first public performance. Made famous in the song - Up and down the City Road, in and out The Eagle, That's the way the money goes, Pop goes the weasel. Leather workers would pawn or pop their tools (weasels) for a drink. This is a more, modern open plan pub, with large picture windows and a very pleasant, secluded beer garden.
